The Photo must be taken by you and/or approved by you, it must be original, that is, is not copied from any other work, and must not infringe upon the rights of any third party. If the Photo was created by a third party (“Third Party Participant”), you own all rights, title and interest to said Photo which is part of your Entry, and you are entitled to grant the rights granted herein to Sponsor. Each Entry must not have been previously published and must not infringe upon the copyrights, trademarks, rights of privacy, publicity or other intellectual property or other rights of any person or entity. If the Entry contains any material or elements that are not owned by the Entrant and/or which are subject to the rights of third parties, the Entrant is responsible for obtaining, prior to submission of the Entry, any and all releases and consents necessary to permit the use and exhibition of the Entry by Sponsor in the manner set forth in these Official Rules. Sponsor reserves the right to request proof of these permissions in a form acceptable to Sponsor from the Entrant. By submitting the Entry, Entrant: 1) warrants and represents that he/she consents to the submission and use of the Entry as stated herein; 2) agrees that Sponsor has no obligation to post or publish an Entrant's Entry, and any postings or publication will be in Sponsor’s sole discretion; and 3) agrees that the posting or publication of an Entry does not guarantee that the Entry will be selected as a winner.

The odds of winning will depend upon the number of valid entries received.
Awarding Prizes: Prize winners will be determined at the close of the Sweepstakes Period and winners will be contacted by Happify via the Instagram, Twitter or email address supplied during entry. Prize winners will be selected on July 1st, 2015. Winners will be selected at random. All valid Entrants will be identified and winners will be selected by a random number generator. The decision of the Sponsor is final. Winners may be asked to provide written electronic consent to use of their user name, photo and likeness at the time of notification.
Claiming prize: Prize winners must accept the Prize within seven (7) days following notification that Entrant is one of the prize winners. The failure of a winning Entrant to respond, or to respond satisfactorily, to the prize notification within such seven-day period entitles Sponsor to award such Prize to another Entrant.
Use of Sweepstakes Data: Sponsor will use the photograph and user name provided by Entrants for the purposes of implementing, conducting and managing the Sweepstakes. Entrants are cautioned that participation is limited to natural persons 18 years old or older, therefore Sponsor reserves the right to ask Entrants, at any time, to provide evidence that they are 18 years old or older. Likewise, Entrants authorize the processing and disclosure of certain personal data, including disclosure of their user names and image on the Internet through the Web Media for the purposes of implementing, promoting, managing and commercially exploiting the results of the Sweepstakes. Entrants expressly accept that their user name and entry shall be processed for the purposes herein described, including –where necessary for the purposes of implementing, promoting and managing the Sweepstakes– the disclosure or transfer of such personal data to other companies related to the fulfillment of the Sweepstakes.
By accepting the prize, each winner consents to Sponsor’s use of his or her user name, photograph and/or likeness, and statements made by or attributed to the winner, in perpetuity, in any and all media now known or hereafter developed for all business purposes without additional compensation, except to the extent prohibited by law. The authorized account holder of the Instagram, Twitter or email account used to enter the Sweepstakes at the time of entry will be deemed to be the participant and must comply with these rules in the event of a dispute as to entries submitted by multiple users having the same e-mail account. "Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider or other organization (e.g., business, educational, institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. If a dispute cannot be resolved to our satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. Sponsor’s address is 584 Broadway, Suite 1206, New York, NY 10012.
Limitation of Liability: Except where prohibited by law, by entering this Sweepstakes, Entrants release and hold harmless Sponsor, its owners, directors, officers, employees and agents from any and all liability or any injuries, loss or damage of any kind arising from or in connection with this Sweepstakes or acceptance or use of any prize won. The Sweepstakes is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations and is void where prohibited by law. If any provision of these Rules is found by any court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, all other provisions will remain in full force and effect.
